Bayern Munich director Oliver Kahn has reiterated the club’s position on a switch to Cristiano Ronaldo, saying the Manchester United striker does not match the ‘giants’ ‘philosophy’ of the German giants.

Former Bayern Munich midfielder Lothar Matthaus said it would be ‘sexy’ if Ronaldo switched to the German club this summer.

But Kahn said to Kicker: ‘Just as much as I appreciate Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the greatest [footballers ever]a transfer would not fit into our philosophy, ‘

Manchester United have reportedly decided they are willing to sell Ronaldo during the summer transfer window.

The Portuguese superstar has made it clear to the club that he wants to leave Old Trafford this summer and he did not train on Monday or Tuesday due to a family situation and Wednesday was a day off for the players.

It has now been reported by The Sun that the club has decided to follow his transfer requirements.

The club had previously insisted that Ronaldo would remain at the club, after a season in which he scored 24 goals in 38 matches in all tournaments.

However, it is said that they have now realized that they cannot keep him against his will and want to avoid getting involved in a long, drawn-out transfer saga as they look set to improve from their worst Premier League season ever.

The club was left in the dark on Wednesday over whether Ronaldo will travel with the squad on their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia.

Erik ten Hag’s crew will have a session on Thursday, but it is unclear whether Ronaldo will attend or be on the plane on Friday when United fly to Thailand to begin a 15-day pre-season tour.
